January 14, 2022 - Over the past four years of the bond, entry vestibules have been upgraded at many buildings to provide more secure entrances and to monitor access. Upgrades include exterior video doorbells and electronic card readers as well as additional interior doors as needed to enclose the vestibule and secure hallway access into the building. The vestibules are the front line of other security upgrades being implemented across the district.
Nine more vestibules will be completed in 2022 to wrap up these projects, including the one at Quatama Elementary, which was created over winter break out of an existing window into the main office. Other buildings receiving upgraded vestibules in 2022 are: Administration Center and Free Orchards, Imlay, Lincoln Street, Orenco, Patterson, Rosedale, and Witch Hazel Elementary Schools.
